The NSRP Surface Preparation & Coatings (SPC) Panel provides a forum for Industry to work with the US Navy to reduce the overall costs of shipboard preservation. Since 1973, the panel has provided a public discussion forum and sponsored over 100 projects investigating technologies and processes to reduce cost and maintain quality of surface preparation and coatings in the shipbuilding industry. The SPC Panel is a collaborative effort involving representatives from the NSRP member shipyards, private shipyards, public shipyards, subcontractors, vendors, academia, and NAVSEA. The panel facilitates information/data exchange and sponsors technical projects. Project results are implemented through specification changes, process improvements and the implementation of innovative materials and tools.
